Peter Knight's Gigspanner artist photo

Featuring Peter Knight, fiddler and vocalist of Steeleye Span. Having now clocked up almost 40 years with Steeleye Span, fiddle player Peter Knight's name and reputation are known to most people with an interest in traditional music. His idiosyncratic style, which effortlessly traverses several genres has been an inspiration to many, and yet to a great extent the full range of his playing is still largely unknown. That is about to change... Wishing to create an opportunity to explore more fully the areas of Music that interest him, Peter created his own trio 'Gigspanner' where he is joined by guitarist Roger Flack and Afro-Percussionist Vincent Salzfaas, who are, in the words of festival organiser Geoff Boudreau 'both powerful and intelligent musicians in their own right'. Together they explore traditional music and song and their related themes with energy, brilliance and spontaneity. World music, classical, African, folk-rock, Cuban sounds, they all make up the Gigspanner mix. Hailed by 'Songlines' Magazine as 'another milestone in folk's rebirth of cool moment', Peter Knight's Gigspanner is rapidly gaining a reputation for leaving audiences completely spellbound with life enriching takes on British traditional and world music. This is a Trio that is touching hearts, minds and souls.
